Abstract

A case of a 44-year-old woman with left ventricular non-compaction which manifested in adulthood as dyspnea, fatiqe and NYHA class III heart failure, is described. She received treatment typical for heart failure and was offered heart transplantation and cardioverter-defibrillator implantation which she refused. Unfortunately, she died suddenly three months after the diagnosis was established.
